When the weather improves, we all love flocking outside for some sunlight. It boosts our energy levels and also provides us with much-needed vitamin D for good health.


However, the sun can quickly sap your energy, so it’s important to have some snacks. This is especially important if you’re having a boat party, and you and your guests are dancing, swimming, etc.


So what boat snacks should you bring along? Read on to see some great choices!


Finger Foods

Finger foods are always a hit for parties since they eliminate the need for plates and utensils. This makes them ideal for a boat party; all you’ll have to do is pack the food, and people can grab what they want, when they want.


Some ideas here include:

  • Sandwiches

  • Sliders

  • Cheese and charcuterie boards

  • Fresh fruit skewers

  • Veggie platter with dips

Portable Snacks

Portable snacks are handy for boat parties too. They’re not complete meals, and people can nibble on these things as they see fit. Offer them small plates or bowls so they can fill those up, then wander around and mingle while snacking.


Your party guests will appreciate foods like chips and dips, nuts and trail mixes, and popcorn. 


Seafood Delights

What’s a boat party without some seafood? Granted, it won’t be as fresh as something you can potentially catch out there, but the treats you bring will suffice.


To keep things easy, you can bring shrimp cocktail with sauce. Not only is it refreshing and easy, but it’s elegant too.


Another idea is smoked salmon bites. Arrange small pieces on top of crackers or cucumber slices, then top with cream cheese and dill.


If you’re feeling up to it, you can even make fish or shrimp tacos. Spread out the tortillas with various toppings so your guests can customize their own tacos. It’ll cut down on your work too.


Healthy Salads

Who says snacks can’t be healthy? There’s bound to be a few people who want something lighter and healthier, so salads are the way to go.


Some ideas include pasta salad, quinoa salad, and Caprese skewers. When your guests taste how cool and refreshing these snacks are, they’ll definitely be grateful.


Sweet Treats

Appease everyone’s sweet tooth by putting sugary sweets on the party menu. No one will be in a foul mood when they have things like mini cupcakes, muffins, or cookies to munch on.


For a slightly healthier route, opt for fresh fruit skewers with chocolate dip. This allows your guests to choose how much chocolate they want.


Stave Off Hunger During a Boat Party

A boat party can be fun, but only if you’re not hangry during it. With these wonderful food choices, you and your guests will have a fantastic time without any rumbling stomachs. And as a result, it’ll be a party that everyone will remember fondly!


Now that you have fantastic food ideas, the next step is getting out on the water. Book a private party boat cruise with us now!
